The dispersal and social exclusion of asylum seekers

This chapter outlines how the terms — ‘integration’, ‘resettlement’, ‘belonging’, ‘social inclusion’, ‘social cohesion’, and ‘community cohesion’ are used throughout this book. It explores a number of key concepts that are central to the arguments, in particular the notion of ‘burden-sharing’, liminality, and trust. It explains that social exclusion of asylum seekers and the lack of the ability to re-establish normal routines, during what will be shown throughout this book to be a liminal period during dispersal, relates closely to the creation of a space for trust. It notes that both concepts assist in the understanding of how asylum seekers experience compulsory dispersal. It then highlights the transnational characteristics of social networks of refugees.

Keywords:   integration, resettlement, belonging, social inclusion, social cohesion, community cohesion, burden-sharing, liminality, trust, asylum seekers
